Puffin (Fratercula arctica)
U.K. Conservation Status: Red
#ShotOnNikon by #RachelBigsby
A recent re-visit to Skomer Island provided a fantastic opportunity to capture more of these sadly threatened members of the Auk family. Skomer Island is a wonderful, safe habitat to approximately 30,000 puffins with numbers thriving there every year.
My priority as a wildlife photographer is to respect the wildlife I am capturing. Sometimes, this means missing the perfect shot or having to remain at a respectable, safe distance for the wildlife. I want to capture images that are very natural, therefore it is crucial to not cause any disturbances to the subject which may lead to unnecessary, distressed and defensive behaviours to be displayed.
I aspire to play a significant role in the production of natural history documentaries that highlight the importance of conservation and the protection of our planet by raising awareness against plastic pollution, poaching, environmental damages and climate change. I hope to continue in the footsteps of those that inspire me to create content that is both entertaining and educational to capture an audience with the beauty of the natural world and simultaneously ignite a determination for conservation, for I believe that there is no time like now to save our Planet Earth.
